Global Innovation Field School

Explore human-focused design strategies in the Birthplace of Humanity

The Global Innovation Field School is a multidisciplinary program, not just for engineers but for all who want to improve the lives of people around the world through application of technology.

Known for producing much of the evidence we have for human evolution, the Turkana Basin of northern Kenya is also in a microcosm of many of the issues facing the world in the 21st century, as well as a unique living laboratory in which to investigate practical solutions to these concerns. Participants in this program will examine the dynamic relationship between humans and our environment, and design equitable, sustainable solutions to problems facing the developing world.

Dates for the 2020 program are coming soon.

Participants will earn six credits through Stony Brook University.
